There is an interesting article at the Guardian's blog for teachers, teacher network, in which the writer points out that in comparison with previous Secretaries of Stae for Education, Michael Gove is dangerous rather than merely inept.
"Gove is not like the other education ministers we have had in the past - inept, ill informed and interfering, but fundamentally well-meaning - he's a wrecker, he does not want to improve our education system, he wants to destroy it."
The writer is campaigning to get Education freed from political interference, and to restore a consensus which is driven by educational values. Gove's aim is ultimately to privatise education. Read it through and if you agree, there's a petition to sign etc.
